Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Melanie Bales
I am an Academic Instructional Coach with a focus on Math and Science. Previous to this, I was a Math teacher for 8 years, teaching everything from Pre-Algebra to Trigonometry. I grew up on the north side of Chicago and came to St. Louis to attend college- I've been here ever since! I completed my undergraduate education at Saint Louis University, receiving a Bachelor's Degree in Math and Secondary Education in 2009. I received my Master's Degree in Secondary Education Curriculum and Instruction in 2016 from University of Missouri, St. Louis. I am dedicated to helping ALL students receive a quality education and supporting teachers in this endeavor as well.
During this unprecendented pandemic, my hope is that everyone is staying healthy, happy and informed! Due to balancing work and childcare for my toddler, I have set my official working hours from 10:15am - 12:15pm and approximately 1:00pm - 3:00pm (times vary during this two hours depending on nap time!). During these hours, I am available via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Microsoft Teams chat/virtual meeting. Outside of these hours, feel free to contact me via text or call (please email me directly for my cell phone number if you do not have it).
